If you like barbecue sauce/flavor then this TRIPLE BBQ Crunch Burger is for you! You get that yummy barbecue flavor x3 in this baby. Can you spot where? 1) the chips 2) the sauce on the top bun that’s dripping onto the chips (uuuh Yum!) ANNNNND 3) it’s in the meat! Oh yeah baby!
Have you ever put chips on a burger or some other sandwich? It’s awesome! A little tricky to get them to stay on, but totally worth the messiness. Oh and you have to use a really crunchy chip. I like the kind that are Kettle Cooked because they are extra thick and full of that scrumptious barbecue flavor that we’re lookin for.
Let’s talk about cheese. Cheese is necessary on a burger. It’s like a blanket that snuggles that big ole patty of meat adding a whole other dimension of texture and flavor. I put white cheddar cheese on this burger and man was that a good choice. I had leftover from this delicious fall salad and this was definitely the perfect way to use it up. Oh isn’t cheese wonder!? Especially when it’s all melty!
It’s not summer anymore so it’s technically no longer grilling season but I honestly enjoy grilling during the fall better. I don’t have the luxury of grilling by a pool that I can jump into to cool off so standing in 90 degree weather with 80% humidity next to a blazing hot grill during the summer months is not the funnest. Standing over the grill in the cool air is perfect. Plus, it is absolutely gorgeous outside with all the colorful leaves. So what are you waiting for? Go get your crunch on and wrap your mouth around this BBQ burger!
Triple BBQ Crunch Burgers
- 4 large hamburger buns
- 4 teaspoons butter softened or room temp
- 1 pound ground round or ground beef
- 2 teaspoons Penzey's BBQ 3001 Spice or some other brand BBQ Rub seasoning
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 4 ounces white cheddar cheese sliced
- 4 large leaves green leaf lettuce
- 8 thin tomato slices
- 1/2 red onion sliced
- 2 ounces 36 chips Barbecue potato chips (We like Lay's Kettle Cooked)
- 4 tablespoons barbecue sauce
Get buns ready by buttering the inside of both the top and bottom half of each bun.
Mix BBQ seasoning with beef and form into four thick patties and indent the middle for even cooking. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Grill for 4-5 minutes on each side, add cheese when the burger is almost done and close the lid for about a minute to let it melt.
Toss buns onto grill for 1-2 minutes until lightly toasted.
Assemble burger by layering with lettuce, patty, tomato, onion, and chips. Spread barbecue sauce on the inside of the top bun. Close it up and chow down!
